Multi-Unit Freehold Mortgage FAQs

What is a Multi-Unit Freehold?

A Multi-Unit Freehold or Multi-Unit Freehold Block is a number of properties that are all on one freehold title. 

This could be a block of flats or a row of terraced houses. 

Each property on the title should be a self-contained unit and can be rented out to different tenants.

We would normally expect each property to have independent services such as utilities.
